LONDON: Junaid Khan was included in Pakistan’s provisional ICC World Cup 2019 squad ahead of Mohammad Amir and it seemed certain that the 29-year-old fast bowler will be travelling for the tournament. However, that was not the case as the selectors decided to replace Abid Ali and Junaid Khan with Asif Ali and Mohammad Amir respectively.
Junaid took to Twitter to express his disappointment at the decision as he posted a picture of himself standing with tape on his mouth and the caption read, “I dont want to say anything. Truth is bitter. (Sach karwa hotha hai).”
Both the bowlers were not included in the initial squad announced last month but Aamir, who is yet to recover from chickenpox, was named for the one-day series against England which Pakistan completed on Sunday.
